Abstract

Peter Weir's "Picnic at Hanging Rock" (1975) is shown to be a misogynistic text of no less interest to the sex-obsessed, patriarchal, ticket-buying Australian public than its contemporary sex-romps of "Barry McKenzie" (Bruce Beresford 1972) or "Alvin Purple" (Tim Burstall 1973).

Impact and interest:
